The Friends of Sunny Hill is a not-for-profit group, composed primarily of family members, staff and community members who provide support through friendship and fundraising. Annual fundraising events include a Mardi Gras Brunch, Autumn Fashion Show, Holiday Craft Bazaar and other events.
Items that the "FRIENDS" have helped secure for the enjoyment of Sunny Hill Residents include a 22-seat, handicapped accessible van and a Culinary Arts Center, located in the activity room and available for resident and family use. Sweets & Treats Ice Cream and Gift Shoppe is also a "FRIENDS" project and is open daily for ice cream cones and treats.
Outdoors, in the courtyard, the "FRIENDS" built raised gardening beds that allow wheelchair residents to continue to enjoy their gardening hobby.
The Friends of Sunny Hill have been recognized by Will County's Community Services Council and is the recipient of the 1994 Community Group of the year Award. All resident family members are encouraged to support "FRIENDS" events and become a member. For more information, contact Activity Director Danette Krieger at 727-8711.
